Happily it’s not too difficult to find a property in Turkey with a sea view – whether you’re looking to invest in a villa, an apartment in one of the country’s impressive new complex or an off-plan new build.
As well as having the beach within walking distance, you’ll also likely to have access to your own pool or at least a large shared version. And here at Oceanwide Properties we certainly have an impressive selection beginning from as little as £42,000.
Relaxing of Property Laws in Turkey
The reason it’s much easier to acquire a Turkey property in Fethiye, Kalkan or any of the other beautiful coastal resorts, is that the Turkish government have made it easier for foreign nationals to do so after lifting restrictions laid down by the Reciporacy Laws. These stated that Turkey would only allow residents from countries which allowed Turkish citizens to similarly buy real estate in their territory were allowed to invest in property in Turkey.
Where to Buy a Property with Sea View in Turkey
As we’ve mentioned the coastal resorts such as Fethiye and Kalkan, are very popular. Fethiye, in particular, has recently been on the receiving end of an expensive government investment programme to enhance its town square and the pretty waterfront area which boasts a range of upmarket restaurants and shops. The country’s second city Istanbul is also proving increasingly popular, with more investment seen in the city centre and outlying areas.
Why Buy a Home in Turkey?
Unlike other Mediterranean locations Turkey’s economy is buoyant. This provides a confidence to foreign nationals looking for a property for sale in Fethiye, Bodtrum, Antalya etc which other countries such as Spain, Italy and Greece cannot match. It’s also easier to reach Turkey with three airports in the country now offering regular international flights. In fact, such is the attraction of Turkey for those looking to invest in a holiday rental or retiral home, that official statistics showed that British buyers owned more than six million square metres of Turkish land and there are no signs that that figure has peaked or even diminished. Quite the opposite in fact.
Costs of a Seafront Villa in Turkey
You’re looking at a starting price of something as little as £42,000 for a one bedroom apartment in an impressive complex in Kalkan and which is just 10 minutes from the beach. The Mavi Yidiz development actually offers the best of both worlds, being a mere 15 minutes walk into the centre of town. Have a bit more to spare? Then you may very well be tempted by a one bedroom apartment in Calis near Fethiye. At £56,000 the Blue Green Resort Residences (also available in two and three bedroom sizes) are only 300m from the beachfront.
Another big plus point about investing in a seaview villa in Turkey is the fact that once you’re made your initial financial outlay, you don’t have to worry too much about ongoing living costs as it’s around 50 per cent less than that of the UK.
